" For experimental jamming '68-69 is where it's at. "

I think 72-74 is more experimental. Certainly the band was playing a lot more deeper and expansive. At least in my opinion. Not to take anything away from 68-69.

I agree about your assessment about the slower songs with a couple of exceptions - Let it Grow, Dancin, and Eyes were very turn on a dime numbers in 76, definately more than they were played in years prior. I think it must have been the whole disco and cocaine craze or something.

Agreed about the 'deeper and expansive' part, but (to my ears) there are far fewer out-of-control freightrain moments than in '72-'74 (which is actually my favorite period on the whole).

"Shit" being the operative word. Sorry, not a fan of "Seastones" at all- to me, it crosses the line between "experimental jamming" and "bullshit wanking off". Edited out of every tape I own from that year. I realize some people love it; that's just my take.
